Booking through Grammar

btt button

Do you have any grammar books? Punctuation? Writing guidelines? Style books?

More importantly, have you read them?

How do you feel about grammar in general? Important? Vital? Unnecessary? Fussy?


I do have an old copy of Wren & Martin which is considered the bible in grammar. I used to leaf through it very often. I think grammar is important and punctuation is a part of it. As I write poetry, I do try to take care of the grammar and punctuation part. It is a necessary tool for any writer.

I've always been a 'grammar geek' :-)

Poetry's the place where I'm least likely to notice "grammar stuff." I think that's where you get to play and have fun. :-)

Grammar is so vital and yet appears to be downplayed a lot in the school system as of late. My BTT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/03/booking-through-thursday-grammar.html

Well, I am not jealous of your copy. You may keep it. LOL, I wouldn't read it. I do not fret on the grammar issue too much. Here's mine.

I don't have any, but need proper use of grammar and language around me.

I have never really considered punctuation in poetry before.

You should share some of your work with us :-)
